After the briefing by Annan, Ban ki-Moon and the Arab League, several members of the Security Council expressed their perspectives. Russia and Annan have spoken about the possibility to get regional players to talk about ways to solve the problems in Syria. They mentioned Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Iran. When war hawk Susan Rice was asked if she would consider the idea of Iran being a part of a possible solution, she answered vehemently that Iran was a part of the problem, not the solution. Both France, the UK, Germany and the US mentioned the possibility of a chapter 7 resolution, which would imply possible military intervention. Russia's Vitaly Churkin said that the opposition has killed 80 people working for the police, military in only two days' time. That should be taken into account and not blame everything solely on the government of Syria. Also interesting to note is that Avaaz is turning into a propaganda-channel for the Saudi-Qatari agenda as well.
